Saddleworth Band Contest

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Hey Lovelies,

This post may only make sense if you have seen the film Brassed off, if you haven't why not? 

Every Whit Friday there is Brass Band contest in Saddleworth and surrounding villages. 

Every Whit Friday come rain or shine (mostly rain) everyone comes out to support the competition. 

For those who are not local this might not sound very interesting or  much fun but it really is. 

Bands travel from all over the world to compete and there is a wide range of prizes. Sadly I didn't get a programme this year so I don't know what they are. 

In my village Bands march up the high street then move sound to the bandstand in front of the Library and play again. and are marked in secret (The Judges are inside the library) 

I just wanted to share some pictures I took with my camera. I have also put loads of other photo's on Instagram. Mainly of my friends sweet shop! (It's amazing!) 

How amazing are the Yorkshire Tea Ladies? (Marsden Silver Band) 

Do you have anything like this where you live?
